Kirkfield

Kirkfield was a "Modern Image" layout that was exhibited for many years at our own exhibition and also on the "circuit" where it made several appearances at other clubs venues. It was always a crowd puller with plenty of action as there was always something moving on the layout.
It had a 2 track main line which went to 4 tracks as it passed the front of the layout and an automated branch line where 3 different trains would appear in sequence.
There was also a large Motive Power Depot and a reasonable goods yard where shunting could be carried out and goods trains exchanged with the main line.
The Fiddle Yards had a total of 18 main tracks and 4 side tracks for DMU's so there was a large selection of trains that could be employed to give plenty of variety for the visitor to enjoy
